Behind every great man there’s a great rabbit

BehindTheRabbit is a startup company located in Rome, founded by Cristiano M. Gaston. The name was inspired by a scene of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” when King Arthur and his knights fight (and lose) against an apparently harmless white rabbit.

We can count on 20 years of Mac experience, the latest ten spent developing various solutions for the web in different contexts. We started our business focusing mainly on Sandvox, an application which opens thousands of possibilities for the designer thanks to its elegant and powerful CSS implementation.

For our designs, we always follow these guidelines: respect standards; implement new features mantaining as long as possible backward compatibility (we guarantee full Internet Explorer 6 support); give the user the best experience, balancing design and usability; and optimize code and graphics for faster page loading even with a slow connection.

For life, we follow these other guidelines: “Stay hungry, stay foolish”...

Grafite    Updated 9 October 2013 · Released 16 October 2009

icon for Grafite

Grafite has an overall dark look. It's suitable for many purposes but it's a pity not to use it for photo galleries: in fact photos look gorgeous! Photo pages have a minimalistic but elegant design: the header is hidden and the site menu is reduced to be unobtrusive. Pictures keep your visitor's focus, nothing else.

The sidebar sports a modern, light grey design with a delicate 3D effect. The white, main text is slightly larger than usual, to improve readability on dark background.
